Télé-Québec faces major cuts
Last updated Feb 16 2006 08:39 AM EST
Télé-Québec has been ordered by the Quebec government to cut its workforce by a third and to move all of its Montreal production to the private sector.
The move will save the public broadcaster $10 million to be pumped back into programming.
Télé-Québec has been told to cut 100 of its 300 employees over the next two years.
The Télé-Québec network is operated by the Quebec government.
It runs mostly educational programming in French, and doesn't officially compete with privately-owned television networks or with Radio-Canada television.
